My name is Maggie and I love words. I currently live in Sunnyvale, CA.

As an undergraduate at Cornell University in Ithaca, NY I majored in mathematics and economics. My favorite classes were my ¬†linguistics classes, Italian, and German. I took 6 semesters of Italian, one semester of German, and I took French from 6th through 11th grade. I’d like to learn more languages at some point, but right now I’m more interested in psycholinguistics, how language influences thought (and what it means for language to influence thought), and first/second/etc… language acquisition.

I blog about food, health, yoga, and life in general over at Say Yes to Salad.

I’m also a cofounder of the site HealthyYum.
